“A Monument of Great Beauty” (Davidson, Marshall B., History of Notable American Homes, American Heritage Publishing Company, New York, P. 340). This phrase, used to describe the Bonniecrest Manor House shortly after its construction in 1915, can just as appropriately be used today to describe the complex as a whole. The Manor House was created by the architect John Russell Pope, who later designed the Jefferson Memorial and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. The recreation of the Bonniecrest Manor House into 13 condominiums was undertaken by Anderson Notter Finegold, Inc. of Boston, MA. With its 1,100 feet of waterfront, over twelve acres of beautifully manicured lawns designed by Frederick Law Olmstead landscaped with laurel, rhododendron and hundred plus year old beech, chestnut and linden trees, its commanding view of Brenton Cove, Newport Harbor, and the Newport Bridge, Bonniecrest is an irreplaceable landmark embodying a luxurious quality of life. Comprised of 57 total units in 4 buildings along with 8 private garages, Bonniecrest offers tennis courts, a seaside swimming pool, dinghy dock, private beach for swimming and kayak access, gated entrance and onsite professional management.
The Bonniecrest Manor House is comprised of 13 grand and exclusive condominiums. Offering private entries and terraces; the Gothic fireplaces, rich oak panelling, tudor tracery ceilings and teakwood floors have been maintained within this picturesque mansion originally built in 1914 for the Duncan family, importers of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce. Allegedly, the home’s chimneys are all designed to look like Lea & Perrins bottles.
